Actually a fabulous movie. REALLY creepy
15 November 2001 | by (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Jeanne Crain is one of the best actresses ever, and in this, one of her last performances to date, she proves that talent never fades away. The plot is hard to explain without giving the ending away, but it is SCARY. It is not a slice-and-dice, this film uses real terror, the kind where you have no idea what's going to happen. A fabulous movie, but don't watch it alone.
